Travel and learning have always gone hand in hand for me so while formally studying architecture, I spent some time hitchhiking around the United States, living with the Amish in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania and working as a lobsterman in Maine. In the course of these studies/travels, I became a registered architect and completed an MPhil in the History and Philosophy of Architecture at the University of Cambridge. Social justice issues have also always been very important to me which inspired me to work with gangs on the west side of Chicago, failure-to-thrive infants and children and young people in inner city schools. More recently, several years of working in Harvard’s House Renewal program exposed me to the wonderful and rich history of Lowell House. As a Host Family to incoming freshmen for several years my husband and I have very much enjoyed getting to know Harvard students. I look forward to learning more from and spending time with the Lowell community!
